Pork chops come in a variety of cuts, and my favorite is a bone-in chop, which preserves moisture and flavor of the pork as it’s grilled. However, you might want to consider buying a pork loin, and cutting it up into 1″ (2.5cm) chops. When marinaded and cooked properly, these chops can be moist and tender. The key to my Grilled Pork Loin Chops is to marinade them overnight in my homemade herb, lime, and molasses marinade.
My marinade uses herbs like thyme and rosemary - classic compliments to pork – as well as lime juice for a little acidity, and molasses to balance the sharpness of the lime juice. Molasses also caramelizes on the grill, so it adds an added dimension of flavor to these chops. I also add a bit of spicy paprika powder for a slight hint of heat.
